Hermes A-1 - first iteration

Photo - check.  Ruler - check.  As-built Semroc V-2 - check.  Mash this stuff up and shove it into RockSim.  And this is what you get.  Since the Hermes A-1 is not based on a V-2, some additional tweaks may be required.  The upper fins seems a tad undersized, but that might be OK.  As is, it needs no more nose weight than the Semroc V-2 with the scale fins.  I guess the added lower fin tabs off-set the effect of the upper fins.  All this needs double checking.
